Our home is yours.
If you need temporary care for your baby while thinking over your adoption decision, The Cradle nursery can provide a safe and nurturing temporary home.
The Cradle Nursery is staffed with experienced and compassionate volunteers, infant aides, and licensed nurses who provide quality care and love to all infants entrusted to our care.
Our nursery staff takes the time to get to know each baby in our care. Not only does this provide children with emotional stability, it gives us the ability to detail babies' sleeping patterns, eating habits and likes and dislikes – and pass this essential information on to the parents bringing the child home.
Naturally, you may visit the nursery as often as you like. And when you are ready to introduce your child to a permanent home, whether the adoptive parents' or your own, The Cradle will provide you the support you need.
